The A in STEAM for us is Aerospace. We are an aerospace magnet school. Sometimes I find it hard to get the Arts in our curriculum. Some of my students are very talented illustrators. I try to work drawing and illustrating in during science lab and their science notebooks.

I love this age! They love science songs and being read to. They also are very much into acting like a "real" scientist. As for your comfort check out the book " Yardsticks" by Chip Wood.
